Trail Mix Cookies

This was posted a while back, but they were so good, I thought I would repost! I must make these soon, I can taste them right now!

Trail Mix Cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and cut parchment for cookie sheets, set aside.

In mixing bowl cream together:
:: 1 C. Butter, Shortening or Margarine
:: 1 1/2 C. Brown Sugar
:: 1/2 C. Granulated Sugar

:: 1 tsp. Almond extract (pure, not imitation)
:: 2 Eggs, Eggbeaters or Egg Replacer

In a separate bowl sift together:
:: 1 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
:: 1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
:: 1 tsp. Baking Soda
:: 1/2 tsp Salt

Slowly add dry mixture to wet mixture with mixer on low so you don't get flour poofing all over your counter and yourself for that matter.

Once it is all incorporated and smooth add the following:
:: 3 Cups Rolled Oats (old fashioned, not quick) - mix on medium

Then, add (while mixing on low - I pulse my mixer as not to crush any of the good stuff):
:: 1 Large Dark Chocolate Bar (chopped)
:: 1/3 C. Sliced Almonds
:: 1/2 C. Chopped Pecans
:: 1/2 C. Dried Cranberries (or cherries)
:: 1/2 C. Raisins

Drop by tablespoons full onto parchment covered cookie sheet and bake 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Move to cooling rack and enjoy!
